Corsair H100i CPU Cooler Review
4 October 2013
Excerpt: Although 280mm radiators and 140mm fans are becoming all the rage in closed-loop coolers, Corsair is showing that we shouldn’t count out 240mm rads just yet. The H100i cools admirably, installs relatively easily, and inspires confidence in its longevity. What more can a gearhead ask for? Well, it was not all wine and roses at first: The pump was pretty noisy.
Conclusion: Corsair's taken its time in producing a successor to the much-loved H100, but the new-and-improved H100i has been well worth the wait. Design constraints prevent the H100i from being revolutionary - there's only so much you can do with a pump attached to a 240mm radiator in a closed loop - but upgrades in every meaningful area make the H100i a genuinely-better product.
Summary: Corsair once again has a nice LCS kit in their hands with the H100i. It remains a kit that is comparable to the really exceptional heatpipe based coolers. The big plus of course is the extremely cool looks inside your PC.
The H100i is showing decent to good cooling performance, that nifty looking cooling block with the new wider tubing and its wide socket compatibility .. well you really can't go wrong with it.
